  1. How does one get on the Brand Advisory Committee? The recommendations and options provided are an improvement over the 2016 version, but still way short of the potential it could have reached. I understand this project is over and done with, still, I would love to add my voice and expertise as an Art Director and accomplished designer for further projects and implementation. I am proud to call myself a Burien resident and would love to assist where I can regarding our city’s image.

  2. Did I read that correctly… $149,300 just for the new logo design and another $100,00-$140,000 to implement the new logo???? Potentially $190,000 that could have been spent cleaning the riff raff up in this city, which in he long run will bring more businesses and residents. City council certainly has their priorities screwed up.

    1. Trish, I think you meant a total of around $290,000. A fair price for your basic hog wash. UGH! Look at what JayRay has done people! They have given you a choice between a slightly modified original image and a ‘B in a circle’ for just under $150,000. No mention of paying the original artist anything for giving them something to work with, since they had no ideas of their own. This is to say little of all the time wasted by all parties over this ‘project’. We give-in to a lack luster image simply to move on. What a total waste.

  3. Disgusting. I hope new people are elected that will use funding on real community needs and not a fairy tale whim of a re-brand thinking crime will magically disappear, the businesses will fill, and that so many other important issues will resolve on their own. This costly new logo does nothing but feed the ego of those who voted for it or it would have been up for a community vote. Stop recklessly spending money and let the people decide.

  4. Pretty ridiculous. I don’t even like how it looks, streamlined and lifeless just like so many other Washington city logos in recent times. The old one had a bit of character and holds fonder memories. A weird looking tree and a big boxy building? Probably an apartment complex. Thumbs down. Big time waste of money!

  5. Disgusting! Waste of time & MONEY! NEVER use OUR money for such waste! I agree completely with Priorities. Original artist was, at the time, an Evergreen High School student by the name of Savannara Kong. He is an accomplished individual in many areas. He is in his forties now. As far as I’m concerned, he should get the money. We have lost vision of our very first sentence of our very first vision statement. We spent money on that new vision statement, too, didn’t we? Just stop it.
